Bearsted Green, BEARSTED, Maidstone, ME14 4EJ
Kentish hops drape the beams in this lively old pub, which dates from 1665 and is known for its good quality menu and the sometimes unusual real ales. The oak-shaded terrace overlooks a corner of the immense village green and cricket pitch, great for those long summer evenings. The kitchens were once the village gaol; escaping from them today are freshly-prepared dishes with a distinct nod towards Scottish beef - the steaks are impressive, from the 28- to 35-day dry-aged rib-eye to the 28-day dry-aged fillet. For dessert, try the apple tarte Tatin or banoffee pie.
